Is it proper to change job now ?

I just started a contractor position (8 month length) few weeks ago. I found the job is not what I expected, it is more like production support work rather than development. Another company I worked with before just told me they have a contractor opening now and it is exactly development work. But I don't know if I should go there --- I just started my new job few weeks, although it really looks boring I feel I better stay for 6 months to have a good record on my resme. But these 6 months will be really not fun at all. One friend said I should just leave.

What do you think I should do ?

Will your current employer put you in a developer role if you say you want to leave due to the role?

You need to check the contract terms -- e.g. one month notice, etc.

Also, have a chat to your employer to work things out or find another position before you jump the gun.
